My 10 month old son fell off bed and has a greenstick frature in arm. This happened on Sunday and is Thursday and still hurts him alot periodically. Is this normal. We got xray and then just a tensor is supposed to be kept over it for a week. He off course wont crawl with that arm but does move it and use it (just not with too much weight). And then off course he will bang it and fall and hit it once in a while as he is really active. Will it heal if he is doin this or should I take him to doc again and try a splint or something stronger. I have been reading that should be stabilized for up to 3 weeks (the fracture is halfway through his bone basically). So just curious if any other mom's have dealt with this - thanks!
